OGDEN, Utah (AP) -- Many property owners facing soaring assessments in Utah are livid at tax increases.

But when Weber County commissioners held a public hearing on a $106.6 million budget, only one person showed up to complain.

The 2008 budget allocates $5.3 million for a library already under construction in Washington Terrace, plus $1.3 million for more than 50 fleet vehicles.

It also delivers 4 percent salary raises for all county employees.

Commissioners said they will adopt the budget on Tuesday.

Weber County Comptroller Dan Olsen said a strong economy will allow the county to avoid a property rate increase and still add several new staff positions.

But one Ogden Valley resident complained taxes are still rising on an absolute basis because of soaring assessments.
